The Beaver Dusters got their point guard back and got back on the winning track Tuesday night, defeating Boise City 66-48.
“Kaleb (McDonald) played again last night, and looked better than I expected hit too,” Dusters coach Garrett Bebermeyer. “We struggled without him at the point. We didn’t miss him so much as a scorer, but as a guy who made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be.”
Beaver got on track early at both ends of the floor, taking a 15-6 lead in the first half. The Dusters poured it on in the second, scoring 18 and holding the Wildcats to just four to lead 33-10 at half.
In the third, the lead reached over 30, before subs played the rest of the game.
“We shared the ball really well,” Bebermeyer said. “We took out our frustrations on them. It feels like we are getting things turned around.”
Garrett Weber got back on track, scoring a game-high 19. Inside the Dusters were strong with Jorge Rivera scoring 13, and Kalen Gabel scoring 12. Kaleb McDonald added 8.
Beaver faces a monumental task this weekend, facing No.8 Laverne (15-4) Friday and No.1 Forgan (19-1) Saturday. These two teams beat beaver over the weekend by a combined 74 points.
“We look forward to this weekend,” Bebermeyer said. “We’re ready to face them at full strength.”
